My old pal Barry Gabel (never OLD, mind you...maybe "friends for a long, long time would be better?") touched base with us on 97.5 WONE this morning with a preview and tease of the upcoming northeast Ohio concert season.
Our big one coming up: April 19th - Bob Dylan tickets for his E.J. Thomas show go on sale starting today, and 97.5 WONE is proud to welcome this true legend of music back to Akron.
Also coming and confirmed with gigs in the Akron/Canton/Cleveland area: Kid Rock, Train, Maroon 5, Fleetwood Mac (Saturday 6/15 at the Q); Dave Matthews (6/1); OAR; The Warped Tour in July at Blossom; Great American Rib Cookoff (tease alert: Brett Michaels) and Seger? Two sold out shows for Seger/Walsh in Toledo and the tour goes through May 4th but there's a lot of talk about trying to get a gig at Blossom this summer. Not done yet -- just "conversation about it."
But no concert announcement is a real concert announcement without a serious tease: "Hall of Fame" band making the trek back to us, with the show scheduled for......
Yeah, that's a tease.
I'll have a MAJOR concert announcement for you on 97.5 WONE Monday morning at 7:20! Hope you'll join us then.
